The beautiful 400-year-old castle is situated in central Copenhagen's popular park, The King's Garden. The castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the numerous art treasures of the previous kings and queens. Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The crown jewels and royal regalia sparkle behind the thick walls of the treasury beneath the castle.

This castle definitely has a wonderful design and fascinating history. But there are better castles out there. As far as castles go, this is a pretty small one - it has 3 floors for you to explore, and on top of that a basement floor which has a totally different vibe from the rest of the castle, representing different aspects...

I get a little tired of the obscene opulence of palaces and this period of interior design can be very overdone, but the castle itself is a worthy design and is worth a visit. There are things about it that are surprising unique such as the "surround sound" system and the Crown Jewels are spectacular. The Kings garden is also... More

Good place to visit if you want to dream how life in Denmark centuries ago look like. The castle is not huge but things inside are really in order and well illuminated. A place to see.

We went late in the day and were mesmerized by the artwork and craftmanship of the Hundreds of objects on display. Room after room, floor after floor, mindblowing details. Make sure you have time for the Treasury underground. Whole family loved it!

Easily accessible by bus, the Rosenborg Slot is well worth a visit - you can see the throne room and the crown jewels. We had to queue to buy a ticket, but it was well worth it. The staff in the ticket office were so friendly and even lent us a coin for the locker

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
